On the morning of December 15, WHS students walked into school to find the walls and tables covered with signs such as “expose the hate”, “no disrespect”, and “insult my race, say it to my face”. The signs were bright yellow, numerous, and impossible to ignore.

Along with signs, there was a poster from “frustrated and conscious students” explaining that they wanted to make a change in the race relations within the school. No students, classes or clubs have yet claimed responsibility for this event.
